DISCOGRAPHY OF ASIAN PUNK MUSIC

This is our tentative to register every punk record ever released in Asia, except Japan. Why to except Japan? Because the task is simply too big to be covered by us. Thousands of punk records were released in Japan since 1976 and we know only a few hundreds of them. We encourage anybody with encyclopaedic knowledge of Japanese punk to publish their own page, or to contact us and see what we can come up with. We could have published our far from complete list but what's the point? As with our Discography of Eastern European punk music, we want to be as exhaustive as possible, and we are not able to do it with Japan. Of course, we know that even with the rest of Asia, we will never have complete data, but we feel we are not so far from our goal. Once again, we encourage anybody with additional information to contact us and inform us about stuff that does not appear here. Most of the Asian scenes out of Japan are pretty new, with the Philippines being probably the 2nd oldest scene, followed by Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Because a large number of Asian punk records were released on tape only, especially in South-East Asia, we are including official tape releases here. The listings are for each country by band, then in the following order: 7" vinyl, 10" vinyl, 12" vinyl LP's/ CD's/cassettes (each category in chronological order), compilation tracks. We tried our best to transcribe phonetically band names, song titles etc from the various Asian languages. It has not always been possible. We acknowledge we still don't master Hebrew, Thai, Burmese and Korean alphabets for instance, and don't always have the time to flip through our Chinese dictionnaries. Sorry! Those of you who can help by contributing phonetical transcription when those are missing, are most welcome! When we miss a transcription, we state it this way (one song in Chinese). When a record has been released in a different country than the one of the band, the country is stated in italics following the label's name. Chose the country you want to check from the list below.

We're looking for information on punk bands and releases from Mongolia, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, East Timor, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Maldives, Bhutan, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein, Qatar, Oman, Yemen, Palestine, Turkmenistan. Afghan bands in exile (or in-country) too! Contact us: tam89@excite.com

WE ALSO RELEASED IN OCTOBER 2001 THE DISCOGRAPHY OF EASTERN EUROPEAN PUNK 1977-1999 AS A BOOK. Check the link to our main website below or contact darbouka@netcourrier.com
